5:36 am
now, this basement here in jordan hall was the site of this mock prison. right over here if i open this door you see what remains of what was known as the hole. this was solitary confinement. behind me are the three rooms. these were made to look like prison cells. you can see today they are just normal labs but they had caged doors on them back then, if you want to take a look at this video that kept the 12 prisoners locked inside. the prisoners were assigned a number and clothed in nothing more than a smock. the guards in uniforms, mirered sunglasses and batons. first day normal, day two they revolted, refusing orders. they punished them forcing them fig naked, removing mattresses, not letting them go onthe bathroom, harassment and intimidation. a few guards days before normal nice guys turned into sadistic officers. what's remarkable is the prisoners themselves tolerated this. some of them were suffering
5:37 am
emotional breakdowns and yet they did not get up and quit in spite of the fact this was, remember, a volunteer experiment. well, on day five things changed. five prisoners did quit by going through a pretend parole process and day six his girlfriend and grad student found the conditions appalling convinces him to shut down this experiment on day six. several years ago this experiment came back into the focus of the public view. might recall abu ghraib prison scandal when soldiers accused of tore touring iraqi prisoners, many made compare sons to what happened here to what happened here years ago. prisoner 1037 one of those prisoners paroled earlier in this experiment. we'll also talk to one of the guards known as john wayne, considered to be the most brutal of the officers down here that
